BORO boss Graham Westley has said he will not make excuses as his side face losing six points following Chester City's expulsion from the Blue Square Premier.
Premier sides voted to kick crisis-hit Chester out of the league on Friday and any points clubs have gained from matches against the north west club this season are likely to be expunged this week leaving Boro six points worse off having already beaten Chester twice.
Writing in his column in the Non-League Paper, Westley said: "At Stevenage, we were one of the few clubs that voted to keep Chester in the competition.
"All else aside, having beaten them twice we would have preferred to keep the points we earned. I doubt that anyone could possibly blame us for that.

"If anybody has a case to whinge, I guess it might be us. But you won't find that happening. This isn't our mentality. Rather, I think that we can make the situation work for us.
"In fact we have faced the most significant of blows. We have been handed no advantage and that is a real positive.
